Given the spike in COVID-19 cases and the arrival of the Delta variant, PIANH has decided to postpone its PIANH Symposium scheduled for Sept. 16, 2021, in Portsmouth, until 2022. Given the CDC’s recommendations and as organizations continue to limit travel to events, we feel this is the safest course of action for everyone.

Stay tuned for more details about the new date in 2022.
